One of the best tours we ever went on, it's definitely a must do! It was perfectly organised so the time was used well and got to see a lot of things. Pavel is very knowledgeable and passionate about Gran Canaria, so he explained a lot of things, from history, culture, food to fauna and flora of the different areas, with so much energy and positivity! We suggest doing the tour at the beginning of your holiday, as he recommended a lot of places we could go to later on our own. However, the places on the tour are not accessible by bus, so this was a great opportunity to see the most beautiful part of the island. I could write for ages about all the beautiful places we saw, how much we learned, how well it was organised and how smooth the driver drove. We fully recommend to take this tour, and can also spend more time at the end at the dunes (have a swim, go to the Mirador) and return by bus 30. Would give 10 starts if I could!

Tour guide was excellent and friendly Whole trip was enjoyable to Maspalmas dunes , and view from mountains Highlight of the day was Mogan so pretty there from the buildings to the lovely beach where you could swim which I did Also nice restaurants and shops there for gifts However stop at Arguineguin market was not very good and others thought so to so think should be left out and other stop included instead or longer stay at Mogan in future

Woooww, worth for every single cent! I wanna highlight Carlos he is extremely well experienced and very patient!!! A big well done to Carlos! I definitely would do it again and again!

It was good. People in the staff is nice but if you are a person who get easily dizzy, probably you get dizzy because of the waves

Super friendly staff, very nice diving place! Overal perfect!
